    Could you provide me some information about how you would say the handle size is set? On the larger middle or smaller end of spectrum?

    This is an amazing looking piece of kit!

    Thank you. It's a 4.5" handle, but because of the design of the front finger guard, it has as much handle purchase as one of my older style knives with a 5" handle. So I would say for my knives, it's on the middle and slightly larger end of the spectrum, but nothing crazy. I wear medium gloves and it fits my hand well with some room to spare.

    If we pick a name for this beauty, do we get to keep it?

    Wow, need a "love" button", instead of a "like" button for this one. Incredible looking blade.

    Matt this one is over the top. It speaks to me. I love my drifter and my dire wolf but she’s gorgeous! If I wasn’t on double secret probation from my bride I’d have to add her to my stable. Well done Brother, you’re the man!

    Matt, WELL DONE!! I have been around here a little while now, and its been really cool to watch your knives progress. From the beginning they've been very cool, but as time has gone on, you've really refined things. Keep up the good work Bub, and thanks for sharing your " 'smithing journey" with us. You are truly a craftsman.

    Well thank you very much!!

    They are usually short lived. I've got a really nice Drifter MKII coming up tomorrow with a beautiful hammered finish, hollow ground, with stabilized Buckeye Burl, and stainless corby bolts with an "Atom" mosaic pin.

    This is the blade:
